I’ve decided this one is ‘walk of the month’ for January. We walked it yesterday, having been confined to the house by the truly miserable January weather for a few days. We convinced ourselves that once we were out and about, all would be well – and it was. The sun came out followed by all manner of birds and beasts! I think there was more variety of wildlife on this walk than we’ve ever seen before in one walk!
It’s slow going with the walking so far this year – life is just too busy at the moment!
Never mind, the kitchen is nearly finished at least and I’m hopeful the weather is going to improve. I’m reliably informed that daffodils are blooming in Cornwall – surely it can’t be too long before we see them up here too! However, although the snow has all gone for now – the rain is back!
Last weekend whilst the snow was still lying in parts, Mr RR and I took a 6 mile ramble along the Teviot accompanied by middle son. It was very icy underfoot and hard going in parts, but despite the need to constantly watch where my feet were going I did enjoy it.
We’ve also managed a couple of short local walks in between storms and floods but I’m itching to get out and about a bit more now. Sadly its not going to happen this week…..but watch this space, there are some keen walkers around and about and I’m hoping to join them for some exercise very soon. Continue reading →
…but today we took a short walk around town and just a little way along the river accompanied by the younger Mr RR. You might remember we walked alongside The Teviot back in August (Scotland walks) before the BIG move. Today we just went to get some fresh air and strolled alongside The Tweed before crossing the bridge and having a quick look at the Teviot again.
I think we’ll be back to do some more walking here very soon and hopefully some rambling further afield as well – just as soon as it gets less busy in the Rickety household!
